Whether in the home or office, we find ourselves staring at computer monitors for hours on end. Today's digital lifestyle brings increased health risks, especially for our eyes. Being in front of a computer all day increases the risk of Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS).
ASUS Eye Care technology has been designed to prevent CVS symptoms caused by prolonged computer use. With ASUS Eye Care technology, ASUS monitors ensure a comfortable viewing experience while keeping your eyes healthy at the same time.
The cornea, situated at the front of the eye, is a transparent cover that protects your iris, pupil, and anterior chamber. Light passes through the cornea and pupil before the crystalline lens focuses it on the retina.
High-energy blue-violet light in the narrow 415-455nm band is particularly damaging to eyes, in particular the lens and retina. The blue band of the light spectrum yields more energy and can pass straight through your eye – resulting in myopia and macular degeneration.
Blue light from monitors may cause eye damage, strains, headaches, and sleep disorders. Children are more susceptible to eye damage because their crystalline lens is less effective in filtering out blue-light, adding to the risk of age-related macular degeneration.
ASUS researchers have been hard at work trying to determine the right amount of blue light reduction for various tasks; the latest ASUS Low Blue Light Monitors feature a OSD menu that allows you to access four different Blue Light Filter settings onscreen:
Level 1 is ideal for normal web browsing, gives you excellent color reproduction for lifelike visuals, and has minimal color shift.
Level 2 is ideal when you're viewing photos and videos, giving you a perfect balance of high image quality and eye protection.
Level 3 gives you the look of real paper, making it ideal for long hours of reading or word processing.
Level 4 is ideal for environments with dim ambient light.
Flicker is caused by the rapid on/off cycle of the LED backlight as it tries to maintain the brightness of the display. Flicker is more noticeable when the display is set to low brightness settings.
Flicker constantly bombards the human eye with a drastic change in brightness. These changes in light intensity cause the pupil to expand and contract, thereby causing eye fatigue, strain, and headaches.
Smooth, glossy surfaces tend to reflect light back directly and cause unwanted reflections and glare. These aren't only annoying and distracting, but can be the source of eye strain and fatigue.
ASUS A+ Anti-Glare panel uses a rough matte surface to dissipate reflected light, making it easier for you to see what's onscreen and reducing eye fatigue in the process. The panel effectively reduces reflections and glare in bright environments, be it under direct sunlight or those from fluorescent light bulbs.
Improper posture could lead to numbness in your fingers, headaches, and lower back, shoulder, or neck pains. In addition, having your monitor set at a wrong height or angle can strain your eyes.
Not being able to tilt your monitor might require you to hunch your back to get an ideal viewing position
Not being able to swivel your monitor makes it difficult to share your screen with others
Not being able to adjust the height of your monitor might mean you have to slouch in your chair
Not being able to pivot your monitor into portrait mode makes it difficult to view certain documents in their entirety
All of the symptoms mentioned above may be relieved simply by adopting the correct body posture at your workstation. ASUS monitors feature a smart ergonomic design with full tilt, pivot, swivel, and height adjustments to give you the ideal viewing position whether you're surfing the net, viewing pictures or watching movies, or getting work done.
